Ecology the three laws by Paul Watson

Special interview to Captain Paul Watson founder and president of Sea Shepherd by Stella McCartney

The three laws of ecology

Captain Paul WatsonI want to introduce today a very important person in safeguarding of environment, the Captain Paul Watson. For who don’t know him, it was co-founder of Greenpace and founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. He become a celebrity about the Sea Shepherd’s battles against the Japanese whalers, and the battles was filmed and transmitted all around the world . It isn’t our intention to celebrate the hundreds battles he did, our goal is to encourage people to read and meditate about his ecologist thought.
We do this using a long editorial he wrote and post in the Lifegate site, in this editorial Paul explain the three laws of ecology.
Like he wrote in the editorial, this laws has been studied in collaboration with Robert and Roberta Hunter, Patrick Moore, David Garrick and Rod Marining.
The law of diversity: The strength of an eco-system is dependent upon the diversity of species within it.
The law of interdependence: All species are interdependent with each other.
The law of finite resources: There are limits to growth and limits to carrying capacity.[wp_bannerize group=”inarticle”]
I want to talk about this three laws because in several of our posts and specially the posts regarding animals we insist to promote the necessary awareness of the importance of the biodiversity, so now you will know from where our persuasion come . Many people and specially who take awareness for the first time of the necessity of protection of environment and wildlife, ask me why is so important the biodiversity, and again why is so important to stop the extinction of species.
Ecology Sam simon sea shepherdAccording with the first law, the power of ecosystem depend directly from the diversity between the species, less diversity less power, less species is less diversity and consequently less power in the ecosystem. So we can say our health depend directly from the ecosystem health. The law of interdependence explain which all species are connected each other, so if one specie will be extinct, the ecosystem will be injured, and more species are extincts more the disease of ecosystem will be big, up to no return line.
The third law is becoming more clear in the mind of people, we are a lot, we are too much and we are growing again, up when can resist the ecosystems before collapse? In the Paul opinion we are very close at the collapses, his prevision is shocking, less then ten years he said, by 2025 the ecosistems of the coral reefs worldwide will be died and worldwide commercial fishing operations by 2030.

Is catastrophic his prediction but he don’t lose hope, we join to him thought when he say, the future depend from our vision, if we refuse the anthropocentric vision and we embracing biocentrism there is hope. Important is to understand that is necessary to follow the ecology laws otherwise we’ll die with the ecosystem

The editorial need to be read completely up to the last word, is a ‘letio magistralis of ecology’ is a thought on which it is important to reflect.

Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race

Iditarod is the iconic sled dog race which can permit us to talk about the wild Alaska and about the famous sled dogs. Sled dogs are domestic of course but are you sure of that? Really a dog who do a strong job like that and in that environment for many days can be considerate just domestic? The origin of … Read more

IUCN and red list of threatened species

IUCN and red list of threatened species

Today we want to write about a very important organization for the conservation of wildlife, I the IUCN the International Union for the Conservation of Nature  and red list of threatened species . This organization have as mission “Influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable “ .

I want invite you to visit their site here, you can understand the incredible activity of IUCN. So way I decide to write this post? simple, is because is the organization who manage the Red List Of threatened Species. Is The data base who contain all the information about the wild animals, and specially information about the conservation status. You can see an use in the Red List site, if you search for example “ wild dog” you can see at the beginning the information about conservation and you can see even all other information. From now, even in our site you will see next posts about animals with the Red List classification, with the image below.

IUCN red list classification as endangered

[wp_bannerize group=”inarticle”]

The important feature is the classification, they use 7 different levels, starting from Least Concern up to totally Extinct. If you try to use you can see a lot of information about the animal so you can understand the method used for classification. Is very important because the approach is scientific and the data is real and a very reliable source. This data is also used in environmental projects for example when you need to decide sometimes priorities of interview. So we recommend when you take information about some animals check even the IUCN classification, actually there are many species at extinction risk and is necessary the help of everyone for the better results. You can help with donation or you can use some of your time in the activism like in social network, helping people to understand concern the danger situation of our beautiful earth.

Last recommendation is to remember that wild animals first enemy is the humans and mostly time the human/wildlife conflict is determining the surviving of wildlife, so is necessary to help the communities to have the correct approach with the animals without criminalize they. Who live with almost nothing can’t have the mental approach of conservation, need to be helped in this and is strong, long and very stressful.
